Ancient Paths 2014
Ancient Paths is a new journey with a heart to travel the ancient paths - walk the paths of the early Israelites, Jesus and Paul and the early church mission trips. This journey will also spend a big part in the Balkan region where it will be pioneering some of the newest countries in the world. During the past 100 years, these countries have also had some of the most unsettled history in the world.
So we started our Jordan trip with a very easy border crossing that put us in Mafraq about 2 hours earlier than anyone expected. Once again we got very few and basic questions at the border and gave them honest answers and said some things we probably should not say. We started our ministry at ….
One night in AmmanWe flew to freezing cold Jordan from hot South Africa and had to get to Isreal from there. It was getting late and we knew that the border was going to close soon. So we just planned to sleep in the airport and go to the border first thing the next morning.As we arranged transport for the next day with a man he invited us to go sleep in his summerhouse for the evening. He took us to the house, got some gas to heat the house with a heater and even gave us some tea and sugar. The one girl in my team mentioned that this taught her so much about the Father's heart because He provided a warm place to sleep without us even asking for it. (We were planning to sleep in the airport remember)
